READ MY REVIEW
Experienced and much-in-demand horse trainer Levi doesn’t need or want people. With his horse and dog at his side, he lives out of his trailer and trains horses in the summer to earn just enough to head south for winter. Infrequent hook-ups with no-tell cowboys takes care of sex, but the moment any connection gets anywhere near complicated, he moves on.
Losing a lover to violence has taught him that if he’s alone, he can’t get hurt, and in return, he avoids the pain of loss. Everything in his easy-going life is on track until he knocks over Quinn, a pink-haired stranger who pirouettes in front of his truck, sits in his lap and calls him cowboy with the sexiest voice he’s ever heard.
Anger turns to frustration, lust turns to love, and by the end of the summer, Levi doesn’t know which way to turn.
Quinn loses everything when the cops find his brother’s body on the remains of a compound that belonged to a cult. Damaged and vulnerable, Max had been the only safe place for Quinn in his otherwise cold family, but finding out that Max might have had a son sends Quinn to Wyoming and the Lennox Ranch.
When he’s knocked to the ground on day one at the ranch, he wonders if maybe he should have thought things through better. After all, he’d bought two horses and a house to get close enough to Lennox ranch just to see if he was an uncle. He craves love, connection and is excited to be part of a family, searching for a place where he can finally stop running.
He never meant to fall for the closed-off cowboy, but somehow Levi steals his heart and Quinn falls in love
“Everything okay?” A man jumped down from the cab. Not just a man—a fully-fledged cowboy.
“Yeah, I’m good,” I shouted back.
“Did you have a flat?”
“No, I’m all good. Thank you for stopping.” I thought he’d leave then, but he didn’t. Instead, he sauntered over to me, glancing at my Lexus and no doubt laughing at little me next to the big SUV. He was broad, slim-hipped, jeans, Stetson, and stubble, all in one sexy package, and I forgot my headache. I had a thing for the rough and tough worker, the alpha type who spent all day in a demanding physical job, but who was happy to bend over for me when I—
“If you need me to get someone to help you, I don’t have a phone but I can surely send someone back for you.” He pulled me from the image of him over bent over the back of anything and me…
I loved the way he spoke, his voice like crunchy honey, all gruff and smooth at the same time. Wait, is crunchy honey even a thing?
I held up my cell. “I have a phone, and it even has reception, go figure.” I huffed a laugh, but when he didn’t smile, I realized I might have sounded rude. “I wasn’t being sarcastic…” Shit, stop talking. He was hot, he was sexy, and I was a mess of nerves whenever I was faced with my greedy lust made manifest. He frowned, and I clutched my phone, because where had my self-preservation gone? He was a stranger, I was alone, we were in on the side of an isolated road. I should at least have had 911 ready to go.
“Town’s that way,” he thumbed behind him, the frown deepening. “I think.”
“You think?” Not a local cowboy then? Shame.
He shrugged, “Sign said so. So, as long as you’re okay here.”
“Yes, thank you.”
He eyed me with curiosity, but I guess it wasn’t often you see some guy on the side of the road with pink hair, eyeliner and gloss. I waited for the comments, for the homophobia, for the sneer, but instead he checked me out from head to toe—I imagine it was to make sure I was okay, but boy, the heat pooled in my groin.
